In what has become a holiday tradition in Kosovo — on every holiday–the US embassy issued the following warning:

United States Embassy Pristina Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Heightened Caution During Religious Holidays (Apr. 13, 2017)

The U.S. Embassy in Pristina urges U.S. citizens to exercise particular caution during upcoming religious holidays and at large festivals or events. Terrorists in the region have previously sought to attack soft targets, to include churches and other places of worship, pedestrian malls, sports arenas, concert halls, and public gatherings.

Review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates. Maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.

Terrorists? In American-made Kosovo (literally, “Kosovo, USA,” as the Bondsteel bunch sign their missives)? Couldn’t be!
